DAY 339 - I Am The Lord Your God



Today's Reading: Exodus 29


Please read Exodus 29 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Message: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus 29&version=MSG


So I will consecrate the Tent of Meeting and the altar and will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests. Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God. They will know that I am the Lord their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the Lord their God. Exodus 29: 44-46




I was having daily devotion on Exodus 28 with my younger son Athanasius and my Godson Vance this evening. I asked Vance, "If anyone ask you to do that many things, would you do that?" He said, "No." Then I said, "How about God?" He said, "No." Then he said, "I even cannot do one simple thing which is daily devotion!"


How sad it is as we do lots of requirements for our boss, for the computer game, for our loved ones but so little for God. Because of so little relationship with God, He can not be our God for we have such a lot of other gods in our lives!


I had a long and deep sharing with a good friend two days ago. He said, "Quite a number of my family members are Christian leaders but they do not act like Christians. What kind of sign it is to my other non-Christian family members? How can I ask them to receive Jesus when they see those who are Christians do things like that!"


If you want to enter into a RELATIONSHIP with God, you need to prepare that he is going to give you more and more requirements and tests so that you can be consecrated and be holy and that He can be the Lord your God! The cost of discipleship and to be consecrated is huge but worthwhile!


Dear Lord Jesus,

You are my Lord and my God. Help me to be willing to pay the price like you sacrificed your life on the cross for us. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

HELLO HOLY SPIRIT!

It’s such a joy to witness the awesome power of the Holy Spirit moving among the Christians here. As we were worshiping at Dukum MKC church, there was so much singing, shouting, dancing, and a glorious exaltation of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is working so powerfully among the people here and no one holds back in worship.

Free. Full-hearted. Open. Jubilant.

That is worship.

Although I did not understand a word they say (with the exception of J├ęsus), I was worshiping in spirit and in truth. Can you imagine a church made of mud and steel plating, and yet it is FILLED with passionate worshipers who want only to praise God with their whole heart, body, mind, and soul? WOW!

Yesterday we went to visit 2 homes. At the first house we visited a girl and her sister, cousin, and mom...

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
